We Invite and Welcome New Junior Lectors to Join the Ministry….
As we begin another school year, we would like to invite and encourage our young parishioners (6th grade and up) to become part of our Junior Lectors group. You would do the readings at the Sunday, 10:30a.m. Mass. along with other Junior Lectors, and will receive a schedule ahead of the date you are scheduled to read. It is a wonderful ministry, and we feel you will not only find it very rewarding, but a way to build confidence while you practice the skill of public speaking, so it becomes natural and comfortable. Please call the rectory (733-5823) if you are interested and would like further information.

Please come visit our GIFT SHOP for one last time and enjoy a
SPECTACULAR CLEARANCE SALE ON ALL ITEMS!!!
This sale will take place next weekend, June 15th & 16th before and after Masses.
The lack of volunteer availability coupled with the “on line ordering” that is so popular with everyone these days has made this decision inevitable. So, if you are in need of any religious items, please take the time to stop by!! Thank you!!
We will open the book for Masses for 2020 on Thursday, June 20th at 10:00a.m. As always, they will be on a first come-first serve basis. You can book either one, two or three “weekend” Masses for a calendar year, but Weekday Masses are unlimited. Save time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

This will be done through story telling, sharing, prayer and reflection. Sr. Preenika will introduce the Sisters of Saint Joseph’s perspective using prayer and reflection and our charism in action. Sr. Melinda will address immigration today and the gifts diversity offers to all of us.
